As a small business owner you know it’s not easy getting your business noticed! We as consumers will go online at a rate of 97% to find local services. How can you ensure your business is found online? There are numerous ways and we aim to tackle a number of these in this post. 

Buyer personas at first glance may seem confusing; however, if you own a small business, it’s best to think of them as a fictional, generalized representation of your ideal client.

The strongest buyer personas are based on market research and insights you gather from your existing client base through surveys and interviews; for most small businesses, one or two buyer personas may suffice to start.

Trying to do them all at once will do nothing but frustrate you. Remember, you can always build more persona later if needed.
